2-Stage Apply Beta with JazzHR

JazzHR is beta testing 2-Stage Apply to introduce a quicker and easier way for candidates to apply to your jobs! By splitting the application process into two stages, we hope to create a smoother applicant experience.

To enable 2-Stage Apply on your careers page:

  1. Click Settings.
  2. Select Career Page.
  3. Use the toggle to Enable 2-Stage Apply.
  4. Click Save All Changes.

When 2-Stage Apply is toggled on, 50% of your candidates will have the 2-Stage Apply experience and 50% will encounter your existing job application.

Candidates that land in the 2-Stage Apply experience will be prompted in Stage 1 of the application to provide their basic contact information, including:

  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Email Address
  • Phone Number
  • Resume*

*Resume will appear in Stage 1 if it is a required field. 

By clicking Submit Application, the candidate will have completed Stage 1 of the application.


Twenty-four hours after the candidate submits Stage 1 of the application, an email will be sent to the candidate requesting additional information! The email will include a link to complete the additional questions on the application for them to complete and submit.  

To preview and customize the email, navigate to Settings:

  1. Select the Templates tab.
  2. Click Emails
  3. Locate and select the pre-created email template, titled Two Stage Apply Reminder. 

Make any necessary changes to the template and Save Message.
